DAWSON CREEK, B.C – Dawson Creek RCMP are honing in on vehicles failing to stop for school buses after receiving a complaint.

In a release Wednesday, police says they received a complaint that vehicles weren’t stopping while school buses were loading and unloading children.

The detachment is reminding drivers that a failure to stop may result in a $368 fine. Drivers must stop when buses have their lights on or signs activated as per Section 149 of the BC Motor Vehicle Act.

Dawson Creek RCMP will be carrying out enhanced enforcement over the next couple of weeks to address the complaint.

“It is our hope, however, that this friendly reminder will correct the issue and avoid the issuance of fines,” says the release.
